Audrey Hepburn was a major cultural icon in film and fashion and became a special ambassador for UNICEF. Audrey was the most acclaimed young ballerina in the Netherlands. Severe malnutrition from World War II stunted her growth and made it impossible for her to pursue ballet. So Audrey turned to acting. She became the lady women have emulated for over half a century. She won an Oscar for best actress in the film Roman Holliday. Her portrayal of Sister Luke in The Nun’s Story is one of the greatest performances of the screen. From the 1950’s to the 1960’s she was the screen’s foremost embodiment of grace. She captured the epitome of mid 1950’s elegance with seemingly carefree ease. Marty will discuss the following films that Audrey Hepburn appeared in:
Roman Holliday, Funny Face, The Nun’s Story, My Fair Lady and Breakfast at Tiffanys.
